Claims that this course is the greatest in-land course in Scotland are absolute non-sense. Admittedly it is very well manicured and excellently presented but these attributes alone do not elevate it to such a status. Given the lofty ranking I expected a very solid and memorable golf course but I am afraid that is not the case in the slightest. It was just over a month that I played and all I can remember are the 1st and the 18th holes. I have played approximately 20% of The Scottish top 100 courses and to date this has been the biggest disappointment by far. What augments my disappointment is that I am very pro “in-land course” and often find many of the traditional links courses to be overrated. After viewing the website and reading some of the previous reviews I did not expect Ladybank to be such a bland affair. If you want to play some fine in land courses head to the moorlands of North Glasgow.
